Day 1: A 7-Day Planner

Day 1: A 7-Day Planner

Feb 01: 7 Day Weekly Planning Sheet There once was a form called The Plain Old 5 Day Planner, showing 5 days of the week using the schedule grid from the Emergent Task Planner. I didn’t think that it would be very interesting, but I needed one for some planning and posted it anyway.

Not hearing anything from anyone, I stopped updating it in 2010. It turns out a few people were using it, and someone asked if there was some way to fit 7 days on it. “That’s crazy talk!” I thought. “There’s no way I could fit 7 days on a sheet and have it be usable at all!” That may be the case, but I tried it anyway. Who knows…maybe it will work!

The new 7 Day Planner is available now for the first time in color, with all 7 days fitting on a single sheet. I dropped the note column to make that work. Unlike the other forms, I didn’t make this a write-in-the-date style form. If this omission fills you with rage, ya better leave a comment :-)

    LOVE it, and am a big buyer on amazon of your available day planners. Any chance of getting the amazon version updated to current version, and in this case, would love to see more stuff there. Not knowing what all of that takes/stock of course…just wishlist

    I’m a little lost between the squares and the lines. I can’t decide if the square indicates 8 AM or if it is the line between the squares.

    Esther: The squares represent a chunk of 15 minutes of time, so the hours start between the chunks, not on them. It is confusing, though, so I’ll see if I can go back and change this to use the ETP-style markers.
